About Me

I'm an eclectic eccentric great grandma enjoying the golden years with my cats (and my SO). I like to make ATC's, write haiku, make soap, make quilts and other fiber art. I like gardening, growing orchids, and camping. I practice Reiki, aromatherapy, and other alternative health methods.

I'm a second-generation stamp collector and have been collecting both WW and US for 70 years. I prefer stamps before the self-adhesive era as my world stamp album only goes to 1970. I really appreciate US stamps from 1975 to 2000 as I recently upgraded my US album, however please do not send any Forever stamps. Any ww stamps are loved also.

I'm not too fussy about ATCs that I receive. I like variety.

I don't send extras and I don't need any so please don't feel you have to send anything. I give hearts for honest effort not extras.

I don't care for politics, organized religion (lifelong pagan), dogs, avocados, and people who put exclamation points at the end of every sentence..

Favorite Music

Folk/World music, 40s Big Band, Grateful Dead, Classic rock, some country and classical.

Don't like rap and heavy metal; mostly like music before 1975 or so.

Favorite Books

Anything by Michener, especially liked The Source. I worked in libraries for almost 50 years so have read a lot. After I retired I put down the books and started living. Life is getting shorter every day. I do like time travel and historical novels but I consider historical to be at least 100 years in the past; not 1970.

Anything by Preston and Child

Favorite Movies

Mostly oldies like on TCM. Gone with the Wind, San Francisco, Titanic, Harry Potter, and too many more to mention.

Not crazy about science fiction, horror, violence.

Favorite Television

House, NCIS, CSI, Murdoch, Gray's Anatomy, Disjointed, Shameless, Outlander, Virgin River, Shtisel, Brit comedies, Documentaries, Historical movies, etc, etc, etc.

I don't like violence, horror, science fiction, cartoons

Favorite Crafts

Quilting, ATCs, Fiber arts, Embroidery, Stamp collecting, Soapmaking Silverplate butter knives, Antique/vintage sewing machines, Gardening, Camping.

Comment: Thank you for the awesome stamps!!! Fun fact about the glassine envelope you sent them in... I was just talking to my dad and grandfather about how they used to always order their stamps from the Littleton Stamp Company! Apparently through multiple takeovers they're now Mystic Stamps. So exciting to have one of their old envelopes!
Response: Interesting-- Mystic seems to have taken over several other businesses.

Comment: I love that you used a rubberstamp for your relief object. That hadn't occurred to me. And a church window coloured with sharpies is a good image on foil. I also really like your custom stamp on the back of the ATC. Thanks for taking up the challenge of a foil relief swap and thanks for making and sharing your work with me, JB.
Response: Thank you
